Maui Police had very serious business Monday. It began very early when officers were called to an apparent abuse case. At 4:35 a.m. officers responded to 794 Makali’i Street in Kahului. A caller had reported hearing a woman scream.
Upon officers’ arrival, they proceeded to a detached room located on the property. Within this one-bedroom shack they discovered the lifeless body of a 43 year-old woman laying on the floor. The female had wounds consistent with being stabbed.
Initial Officers searched the area for a possible suspect, and located a lone adult male in the back portion of the main dwelling. The male, 25 from Kahului, was detained and eventually taken into custody as it was revealed that the male had potential evidence linking him to the death of
the female. The suspect and victim are known to be related.
The suspect remains in custody and has not been formally charged. Investigation into this incident is still ongoing.
